The Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Inspiration” will become the fifth of Kobe 9 Elites to release when it hit stores tomorrow, March 1st. We’d assumed that the pairs would be a little bit more widespread by now, following the understandably limited releases like the “Masterpiece” and the “All Star”, but the pair was still ran through the Twitter RSVP system as far as Nike’s official doors were concerned. Get with us after the break for a reminder on the sneaker that’s set to make its debut and remember that you should be able to find some out there now from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.
Nike Kobe 9 Elite “Inspiration”
Color: Black/Metallic Silver-Anthracite
Style Code: 630847-004
Release Date: 03/01/14
The Masterpiece Edition in my opinion was the nicest shoe in person I've seen in like a year or so. Colors, design, etc. It was amazing. Gonna try at some point to get a pair for myself. That being said, I've seen pics of the lows, and looks like it kind of defeats the purpose of being a really well supported basketball shoe. Backing looks flimsy. Nice though.
I can't wait to get mine tomorrow. Finally. I wasn't feeling this colorway at first until I saw the medial side of the shoe.
Limited! I called all the local malls here in the Dallas ft. worth area and only select stores have them in limited quantity
If these were a mid/low cut the Kobe 9 would be one of the best hoop shoes I've seen. Hope the non Elite is like that!
@dubblec The lows are coming out on the 29th. They look alright.
@KicksOfLife Hope so. Will be my new bball shoe for spring/summer when I play. Like em, just iffy about the backing/ankle support. Heard around the 27th or so of this month but that could just be people guessing.
